No injuries have been reported after a small plane was forced to make an emergency landing on a highway in Delta.

Delta police spokeswoman Jamie Head said the plane left Grand Junction on Thursday and traveled about 40 miles before losing power.

Head said the pilot tried to make it to a nearby airport, but was forced to land on U.S. Highway 50. The plane did not hit any vehicles and the pilot was able to move to the shoulder of the highway. The highway was temporarily closed.
